and presidential candidate george mcgovern. now republican presidential candidate mitt romney in ames iowa for a speech on the economy on his economic plan. according to the latest polling average, president obama holds a % lead in this state. this is about 35 minutes. ♪ >> hello everybody, how are you doing? you live in iowa and you live in a battleground state. let me say that again because i don't think i've said that in all the years i've been in politics. we're a battleground state this year and that makes it very important. and i'm glad i have the opportunity to welcome the next president of the united states. and i know it's cool and you feel the chill but also you feel the momentum of romney being the next president of the united states. [applause] now you folks all know people who voted four years ago for president obama. you know that he promised partisanship and to reduce the deficit by half, that he was going to give us accountable government, that he was going to reduce your health insurance by $2500. today we have would have 5 and 6% unemployment instead of 8 and 9%. that w
rights. >> the expectation was that romney would do very well. >> mitt romney, the republican candidate... >> i ran into someone who was not so friendly to us who said, "did you come to see your guy destroyed?" i paced in the back of faneuil hall during the entire debate. >> good evening and welcome. >> narrator: romney directly confronted edward kennedy. >> senator kennedy, my impression has been that you have followed a campaign, as soon as the primary was over, of trying to divert the voters' attention from the issues at hand, and instead making personal attacks on me which are unfounded, unfair and sleazy. >> narrator: kennedy had unleashed negative tv ads. >> romney. it's not just what he did to his workers and business that's the problem. it's what he might do to us in the senate. >> kennedy was a master politician and what he did was he used a series of filmed ads to its maximal effect. >> mitt romney says he helped create 10,000 jobs. the former workers at scm in marion, indiana, say something else. >> i'd like to say to the people of massachusetts, if you think it can't happen
enough. and i don't know how many dead children it would take to satisfy mitt romney and the republicans. guest: talk to us about the effects as you see them of third party candidates on the republican effort in north carolina. guest: right now from what we're seeing it doesn't look like it's having an impact. to the extent they are drawing folks out it's from both parties and doesn't look like it's going to impact the presidential race or other races where libertarians are running. host: we've got a tweet -- guest: i'm not sure what to make of that. we certainly have our issues but the fact is that this is a state that traditionally has gone for republican nominees for president and i believe we're going to return to that in 2012. host: next up is rich on our republican line. caller: thanks for taking my call. last night i was watching the news and they were talking about the cast of electoral votes and they were talking about the possibility that the electoral votes could wide up high and the house would elect romney as the president and the senate would elect biden as the vice preside
. in its endorsement of romney the first republican to receive the backing in 40 years the editorial board writes -- in recent weeks, romney has been pointing to his alleged record of bipartisan saying yesterday that he would work with democrats as long as they're the good ones. >> we're going to have to do something that has been done in the past in this country, reach across the aisle, we're going to have to find good democrats. good democrats love america too. we have to reach across the aisle, work together, collaborate, meet and fight for the american people and we will. >> it is unclear who mitt romney considers to be, quote, good democrats. but it's worth noting that when governor romney was the governor of massachusetts, he and the democratic controlled legislature were hardly on good terms. though he and the lawmakers reached a deal on health care reform "the new york times" reported this month -- steve, i always go to you when we talk about massachusetts politics. >> i like that. >> i really could go to lawrence. >> i defer to steve. >> for another great prediction, right? >> mak
. and if wisconsin goes for mitt romney, that will be a shocking development. republicans lost the state by 14 points four years ago. >> geraldo: ohio. everyone is talking about the buckeye state. what about ohio, scott? >> ohio is very close. showing it tied right now. that is a state again where the democrats actually think they had the edge on the ground. almost all of the polling has shown anything from a tie to a slight obama lead. this is a state that democrats are very confident they can hang on to. the president really needs to win both ohio and wisconsin if he wants to keep his job. romney needs to win one of those two. >> geraldo: iowa? >> iowa, another tie state. this this midwest that is become the pattern. the des moines register came out and for the first time in decades endorsed the republican candidate. why? the economy is the key issue. and in all of these states what we are starting to see is voters are saying they trust romney more than obama when it comes to the economy. >> geraldo: scott rasmussen we will be checking back with you. what are you doing tomorrow night? well, you wil
before the election, the candidates will be in wisconsin this week. today, republican mitt romney's campaign has an event in milwaukee. tomorrow, president obama will be in green bay. the volitility index, better known as the vix, may be signaling better days ahead. according to reports, a strategist at jpm morgan believes if the vix remains near current levels this week, it will mark a transition from crisis to normal time. his theory is if the vix stays around 16, the 52-week moving average will fall below the july 2011 level to its lowest point since february 2008. we asked a couple of options traders to weigh in, starting with scott bauer of trading advantage. "yes, i do believe that if we get through the crisis of these horrendous earnings we've been seeing over the past couple weeks and we stablize and stay in this range, i do think we will be back to what we call that normal trading range." "i think it's too early to tell right now from the vix if the environment out there is going to be more normalized for the next several months." dan deming of stutland equities also says
, talking about how it will really matter or not romney loses ohio. no republican has ever won the white house without it. rasmussen came out with a poll showing that governor romney is taking the lead their. >> well, yes, here is the thing. we have seen all along that mitt romney could not quite close in ohio and he has continued to do better in places like florida and virginia. ohio has posed a difficulty, he couldn't close the gap with the president. what we have seen has been a slow-motion surge from mitt romney. it started after his first debate and has moved forward. it has been not a landslide or explosive, but what it has been a steady. that is what mitt romney has to like is that he he continues to gain ground. we know that ohio is essentially a tie. but before they had been a tie, now it is the other way. if you are mitt romney, you have to like that this close to election day. >> as you watch the storm surge, we talked about a storm surge for governor romney in ohio. for him, it could not come at a better time. eight days out from the election. looking behind the rasmussen num
in the area affected by the hurricane or not. republican challenger mitt romney went ahead and held a rally in avon lake, ohio, this morning but said everyone's thoughts should be with thosen the storm's path. >> u.s. with full hearts and clear eyes can see what's happening across the country right now. and on the eastern coast of our nation, a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times. we face these kind of challenges before. as we have it's good to see how americans come together. this looks like another time when we need to come together all across the country, even here in ohio, and make sure that we give of our support to the people who need it. >> woodruff: roey planned an ternn event in ia bere suspending his schedule tonight when the hurricane is is coming ashore. instead, his campaign loaded emergency supplies on to the romney bus in virginia to deliver to storm relief centers after sandy hits. president obama had been in orlando, florida, last night. he delivered pizzas to a local campaign office but called off an appearance there today with former president clinton. >>
at the crowds that romney and ryan were able to gather this past weekend, actually republicans believe they can win this time. i think it will probably be a little bit closer than that, romney wins by a when i say kerr, but some of the states that were strong obama like minnesota that are now in the lean obama column, and they have to send bill clinton out today to minnesota to try to help. >help. >> sean: i'm here to save my buddy, barack obama. >> the headlines coming out of that were so bad, i wouldn't have sent him in the first place. >> sean: here's the deal. they gotta send joe biden to pennsylvania because the polls are so close. michigan is tied, wisconsin is tied, colorado, romney is up, virginia he's up, florida he's up, and we have rasmussen now showing the moment ump has shifted in ohio. if i'm barack obama, there's no poll now moving in his direction, juan, and states that he won by huge margins, he's either tied or just slightly ahead. that's a problem for him. >> well, look. i don't think anyone debates the idea it's going to be a very close race, but the numbers you put out. >>
of photo-ops for the republican nominee, as well. romney has just a few days to get his message out. he hasn't been consistent in the past, so now what does he do? as for president obama, he's canceled his campaign events today and tomorrow. instead he will survey damage in new jersey alongside republican governor chris christie. he needs to show the country that government works and government resources are important and when a big disaster strikes, you need the federal government to step in and work with state and local governments. now is the time for the president to show true leadership and i think he is and according to one republican and romney surrogate, he is. chris christie has praised the president's efforts but had a little patience for a fox news question about a possible photo-op with mitt romney in the days to come. >> we hear that perhaps he's going to -- mr. romney may do some storm-related events. is there any possibility that governor romney may go to flj to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. i have 2.4
] down. >> if the republicans steal this election, i'm going to track down mitt romney and give him the world's biggest [bleep] punch. what's the matter, sonny? you never heard that phrase, [bleep] punch? right in the [bleep]. >> if you let the republicans do this to you again after we die we're going to look down on you from heaven and we're going to make a point of watching you have sex every time, no matter how kinky. >> especially if we are related. >> burn that mother [bleep] down? so much for civility. joining me for reaction to this latest disgustin disgusting disa guy who said if you don't have a record to run on, you make an election about small things. let's see. big bird, bayonette, dirt water, now we've got people talking about burning that mother blanker down? >> your party? >> my friend michael moore, yes, we're besties. this is not from the obama campaign. let's be clear about that. this is from michael moore. the ad is just da -- besides beg vulgar, it's a stupid ad. it's not funny. i'm wondering if there's anyone who defends this. >> sean: the one probably that offe
? >> the optimist says okay, if it's mitt romney, he was a republican governor and figured out thousand get it done. if president obama is elected. he's got to worry about his legacy and maybe do some things and say let's not just look at each other with nasty faces. >> who's right? >> that switch, if you go back sir months ago was just the opposite. businesses were doing okay. consume er struggling. 2% real gdp, we just got that at the end of the week on top of 2.4 in 2010. 2.0 last year. first three quarters of this year, averaging 1.7. 2% growth. >> what about the housing market, bob? it feels like it's doing better than the overall economy. feels like it's on the rebound. how important is that and do you believe we are seeing an improvement in housing? >> i think the last part, we are seeing a slow bump in housing. it is part of the reason why the consumer is feeling better. i think housing is key. remember, housing, mortgaging, credit, almost did us in a few years ago and so, that feeling slowly is a good thing. >> let's talk fed for a moment. this week, the federal reserve left interest rates
. mitt romney's role, if he's president, his role in the republican party will be to implement the agenda of the republican party and the agenda is very clear when it comes to climate change, it's skepticism, hostility to the idea of cap and trade, pro coal, pro drilling, pro-pipeli pro-pipeline. >> reduce regulations. >> we know what you're getting. i don't know what mitt romney believes in his heart of hearts but he cannot survive as president politically if he's not actively trying to implement his party's agenda. >> nbc news poll found that 43% of voters have a somewhat positive view of mr. romney. only 36% say the same thing about the republican party. so if mr. romney is more popular than his own party, does that suggest that the moderate mitt routine has actually been working? the subterfuge has worked? >> the subter fuge has worked. he looks presidential. he seems like a nice guy. but mitt romney is sort of like forest gump. the great line, life is like a box of chocolates. you never know what you're going to get. mitt romney is like a bokts of chocolates. you never know what you'
closed. tonight, a republican presidential candidate mitt romney speaks to supporters in avon lake, ohio. he attended a rally there earlier today before canceling the rest of his campaign events because of the storm. you can see his comments at 8:00 p.m. eastern tonight. and vice president joe biden was also in ohio or earlier today. he campaigned in youngstown with former president bill clinton. this was after president obama also canceled all of his campaign events because of the storm. president obama won an ohio four years ago. you can see them tonight at 8:35 p.m. eastern also 1 c-span. -- also on c-span. >> not too long ago no one would have agreed to carry around a tracking device, but now we all carry around the cell phones, which can be tracked. a lot of us use g mail and all of our e-mail is stored on a server. >> we were looking into cyber and cyber security and cyber war. the pentagon had declared cyberspace as a new domain of war. we realized maybe one in a thousand people really understood what cyberspace was. and the degree and double the of the vulnerability. -- end of th
about 5% republican support. so that crossover appeal so to speak of romney's in florida and the independent edge that he appears to have is making a difference. but good campaigns can change polls. they're not changed by polls. and the question is who turns out their voters and who does it best. we're going to find out today. today is the last day of early voting. and then on tuesday that's when the ball game is. >> mark murray, let me bring you in. both men have these op-eds in "the wall street journal." we have the headlines. real progress, but we're not done. that's from the president. and governor romney, a new direction for america. what are your thoughts on just the headlines alone, not even the content of the op-ed itself. but those two different headlines. >> well, right. they're actually two different realities. actually, when you look in all the polls, it doesn't matter what it is. democrats seem to be a whole lot more optimistic about the country's direction, or people who are actually planning to vote for obama are more optimistic. people who are more pessimi
the republican primary that were made by governor romney regarding fema. we know fema is still popular in that state for the obvious reasons. >> i think it would. florida is a big state. we're a tv state. our electorate makes its decisions largely on what they see on television, not what they read in the newspaper or on the internet. the coverage for a while before, during and after sandy, especially after sandy has been very favorable to president obama. you would think that's going to help, and it's still going on. having chris christie as a de facto unintentional surrogate doesn't seem to hurt obama one bit. it probably seems to help him. >> what is so interesting, you said chris christie, de facto endorser of obama. you've got this new article exclusive from politico saying there were people on governor romney's team who believed that chris kri city was the vp choice almost until the very ending, and surprise it's ryan. isn't the timing interesting? >> it's a little too interesting. look, there are two ways to react. governor christie says i'm doing my job. the president is doing h
of voters. the economy is trumping the cultural issue of. it rubbed them out. i think also mitt romney is more the kind of candidate that people in affront -- affluent suburbs cotton to. he is from the suburbs himself. he won the republican nomination in affluent areas and shown himself to be more articulate than president obama, the supposedly great orator. people in affluent suburbs like people who are articulate, who use words good, as i like to put it, and that is an advantage that mitt romney has and that he demonstrated to great effect there, and i think -- i wrote earlier in the washington examiner that romney was a kin dread spirit to many aflute people. politically awkward on some occasion. he is able to make a sharp point but is polite and is conservative on the cultural issues. has an attitude that reminds me of the inscription on the tombstone of an english woman which noted she was religious without enthusiasm. >> well, what's this democratic argument you're hearing now, that says, okay, all of that might be true, but republicans have no chance at michigan and pennsylvania
at michigan and pennsylvania anyway. and, look, in ohio, which the republicans have to win, romney has to win, where barack obama is still leading, still leading wisconsin and iowa and nevada. that is his fire wall, and unless romney can break through that he won't win the election. >> his fire wall used to include florida and virginia and they're not talking about that as fire wall states anymore with romney ahead in florida. the very fact that michigan and pennsylvania, which obama carried by 16 points and 10 points four years ago -- have gotten close i think has to be an indication that the affluent suburbs, oakland, macomb, livingston in michigan, have been moving towards romney in a significant way, and i think that the democrats are giving you static analysis there. and i think there may be a dynamic at work here. the affluent suburbs are places that people generally tend to turn out in large numbers, and we've seen signs that republicans have more enthusiasm this year. i think one reason ohio is closer is that affluent suburban counties are only an eighth of the statewide votes and a w
management agency. does mitt romney still >> eliot: natural disasters can i an unpleasant but strong reminder of the benefits and importance of a strong federal government. just don't tell the republicans. or more specifically mitt romney. here is romney during the g.o.p. primary debates in june of last year. >> fema is about to run out of money, and some people say it's on a case by case basis. how do you deal with something like that? >> absolutely. every time you have an occasion that takes something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go any further and send it back to the private sector that's even better. we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it is simply immoral in my view. >> eliot: to discuss the federal response to the storm and the on the upcoming elections we welcome minnesota congressman and co-chair of the congressional progressive caucus representative keith ellison. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for inviting me. >> eliot: i don't understand. maybe you can she
about mitt romney. they are republicans. he does not energized them. we will see what the turnout looks like in northwest iowa. those two areas, if we want the turnout in posted areas, it's very heavy in the quad cities, but good news the democrats. it's very heavy in northwest iowa, but good for republicans. the central part of the states, including des moines, that democratic. we will watch the turnout. democrats have to come out of here with $10,000 plurality of voters in that county, the democratic part of the state. we will see what kind of "margin call, obama has here. host: voting systems in your state, how do you vote? guest: i voted two weeks ago. we have early voting and starts three weeks before the election. you can vote early. about one-third of the total votes cast will be cast before election day. a lot of the stuff that's happening right now in terms of trying to influence voters is wasted, because a lot of people have already voted. you can vote in your present before the election and then we have -- we vote in precincts across the state in every corner of the state by

of the united states coming in here on this final weekend. mitt romney, the republican nominee, was here this morning. a lot of high profile, high powered contact with the nominees themselves here in dubuque a small area. gives you an idea of how intensively they're fighting for every single electoral vote. what the president is doing on the stump, he was just in milwaukee. slightly bigger battle ground, one democrats hoped they had locked down. he's playing defense there because mitt romney is making a strong charge there with paul ryan from wisconsin on the ticket. the president is trying to do in his stump speech is say wait, don't let mitt romney steal the mantle of change that he had in 2008. he's trying to seize it back and say that mitt romney has got failed policies of the past. take a listen. >> in other words, wisconsin they're betting on cynicism. they figure they can outlast you. they figure you know what? these guys maybe get enthusiastic, but over time, that enthusiasm fades away and we're still here. but wisconsin, see, my bet is on you. [ cheers and applause ] my bet is o
republican voters get out to the polls, and also independents that have been identified as votes for romney and me. >> i know you have a race going on as well how is your race shaping up at this point? >> it is very good. we feel like we will win by a couple of pointos election day. senator nelson said one thing to the state of florida and done another thing in washington d.c.. and the people in the state of florida want somebody to stand up for them and that's what i will do. >> it is going to be engaging day on election day and into the night. thank you for joining. and you keep close watch as we are, too. and thank you and all of the best to you. >> thank you for having me. >> we'll go back to ohio where the campaign is making a final pitch. his campaign spokeswomen is there. >> hi, great to be here. >> nice to have you. i want to talk to you about the ground game. there is buzz about the president's comment in springfield, ohio say thag voting is the best revenge against governor romney. in the closing days, some are asking what happened to hope and change and why talk of revenge? >> i
like this, the president's getting the democrats, romney's getting a republicans, the candidate who wins among independents is likely to win. that is critical the watch in the last week to election day. there's also an age divide. it's important as well. you see a huge leap for the president. 56-38, among voters under 50. that's an important part of his constituency. republicans need the older voters by 2i-46. governor romney would like that to be bigger. there's also a racial and gender gap, if you will. i want to put it this way. the president is, if he is above 40% in the white vote, he tends to win a state because of the demographics like ohio. you see them here, 41% of white men, 46% of white women. if the president can hold those numbers, it's most likely he would hang on to ohio. >> from all the math i've seen out there, it's incredibly difficult for mitt romney to get to the white house without ohio. what is his game plan if he doesn't win the buckeye state? >> you know the history. no republican has ever won the the white house without winning the state of ohio. if we start
the republican primary debate, governor romney said he was ready to come home from afghanistan. i know there's some quibbling here and there on timeline, but to tell you the truth, i don't think there's much daylight between governor romney and president obama on the war. the real difference is on the economy. they're night and day on the economy and not that far apart from coming home from afghanistan. i will try to keep us out of war in syria, keep us out of preemptive war around the world and i will fight for these things and hopefully, i'll be able to convince governor romney campaignfully to come to my direction. within the republican senate caucus, you know, there's probably 10 of us now who are reticent to give the president unlimited authority for war. it doesn't sound like many, but it's 10 more than there used to be, i think, who believes that congress declares war, not the president, and there are probably a few democrats who believe that too, and so, i think there is actually a bipartisan sort of libertarian, but more constitutional caucus on war issues and i've been working hard
2016 and he can't do that if romney gets elected. there are people on the republican side that think that. >> he has to run for re-election fired a first and he knows who is going to be the president of the united states a week from now and that is barack obama ma. mitt romney -- the president who is going help out new jersey is president in october, november, december and january and chris christie needs him. i think that is the thing that people over look. they assume that either you work together or you play politics. in this case the politics is working in favor of cooperation. as you say, obama is going to be president for at least three months and christie in a year is going to be judged primarily by how he responds to this crisis. people are affected when they look like stuff like this. >> i have family in rock away. you can't see this level of suffers and say i'm a political leader and i have to solve this problem. you have that great discussion. my favorite line on government comes from government is the enemy until you need a friend. >> that was a great line. there was bipa
congressional republicans basically have stood by silently while mitt romney made this violent etch a sketch move not because they believe he will govern as a bipartisan moderate, but only to win and then he will adopt their agenda and if he doesn't, the idea that they will quietly go along, because as david said, they're going to want their president to succeed despite the right wing primary challenges they face, is just frankly bizarre reasoning. >> that's a good point. and thomas, you know, "usa today" has a story about grover norquist talking about the stalemate. americans for tax reform president grover norquist whose anti-tax oath has been signed by almost every republican member of congress is girding for a fight if obama is re-elected. no compromise norquist said adding his prediction for an obama second term there's a stalemate. if romney is elected it's putting the ryan budget into law. we don't need a president we need a zombie who has functioning digits or can sign his name on a dotted line. let's pick two scenarios here. if the president is re-elected how does he deal with a tea
